What we're about
Aikido Kokikai Orange County is a welcoming group dedicated to the practice of aikido, a non-violent Japanese martial art. Aikido uses an attacker's momentum against them, making it an ideal art for any body type, regardless of strength or physical fitness. Practices focus on joint locks and momentum-based throws, along with ki exercises (learning the body's best alignments) and falling and rolling practice. We welcome practitioners with any background or physical abilities - aikido can be scaled and adapted for all, and our small class sizes facilitate this approach.
